Membrane Cleaning Skid

The cleaning skid is designed for manual operation through a local control box located on the skid. A chemical storage tank is mounted on its own stand and connected to the skid with either hard PVC piping or quick disconnect fittings and flexible hoses. This gives the unit the ability to be mounted in a permanent location or totally portable if desired. The piping is schedule 80 PVC that is hydrostatically tested at the factory. The electrical enclosure is NEMA 4X. All skid wiring is completed and tested before shipment.

Membrane cleaning Descaling

Membrane Cleaning Chemicals Acid and alkaline cleaning chemicals are most commonly used for membrane cleaning. Acid cleaners are designed to remove inorganic and iron deposits. Acid cleaning should be performed at a pH of about 2. Alkaline cleaners are designed for removal of biological matter, organic foulants, and silica deposits. Alkaline cleaning is performed at a pH of about 12. Membrane Cleaning Process

Reverse Osmosis membrane elements can experience a decline in performance due to the accumulation of deposits on the membrane surface. Mineral scale, colloidal particles, biological matter, and insoluble organic compounds are the usual causes of membrane fouling. When production of a Reverse Osmosis system drops by at least 10 percent, or the differential pressure increases by 15 percent (over normal operating conditions), membrane cleaning should be performed.
